CN: How long have you been natural?
GN: My last relaxer was December 2005 and my self-BC was November 17, 2006.
CN: What is your regimen?
GN: My regimen is amazingly simple. I cowash, currently with HE Hydralicious, every few days and detangle with a wide tooth comb or a Denman Brush. Lately I’ve been trying other leave in’s besides just the conditioner such as Fantasia IC Gel, Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk, and Curlz Souffle.
CN: What is the one thing you’d tell a newbie to help her on her journey?
GN: To transitioners..Don’t use heat and don’t trim for as long possible after a BC. Your hair will grow SUPER fast and you will have virtually no split ends. For everyone, keep it simple. Look at all the ladies with long hair most have very simple regimens.
CN: How do you maintain length?
GN: I maintain length by not trimming, cowashing, and protecting my ends (buns and ponytails).
CN: What’s the best thing about being naturally glamorous?!
GN: I get so many more compliments on my hair when it’s curly. When my hair is straight, I just hear women say, “wow, your hair is long.” When my hair is curly I hear more in depth comments from men AND women, about the curls, texture, color, thickness. I never blend in when in a crowd. I feel like natural hair even makes my outfits look better.
